Netflix has been praised for the part it continues to play in the fight for diverse programming today after announcing the birth of an African-American anime series starring Jaden Smith.
Its name? ‘Neo Yokio.’
Its creator? Ezra Koening of ‘Vampire Weekend.’
Good news below…
‘Yokio’ follows the life of a young man named Kaz Kaan who comes from a family of demon-slayers who once saved their city from the forces of evil.
However, the fun-loving Kaan is more interested in shopping, partying and playing with his robot than following in his family’s footsteps when said forces rear their ugly heads once again.
Things change when he meets a former fashion blogger who pulls him into hidden corners of his city and awakens the power he possesses to save the world from doom.
Its due date? September 22nd.
